Our family trip to Niagara Falls

2 Comments

From News Day:

Last summer, two of my friends and I visited Niagara Falls for a couple of days. Our families each rented a room at the Hilton. After we checked into our rooms, we walked over to the falls and took some pictures and videos. We went to the gift shop there for a while and looked at some cool baked goods and T-shirts. Once we left, we went back to the main area to wait for the lights inside of the falls to come on. When the lights finally came on, we all got very excited and took more pictures.

In Buffalo, there are two rite of passage drinking ages: 19 and 21.

For 19 and 20-year olds, it’s one of the best perks of living a short drive from the Canadian border: Having the ability to enjoy a night out drinking legally with friends two years before you can in the states. Read More…

From the Niagara Falls Review:

President Donald Trump’s push to have all visitors entering and exiting the United States subjected to biometric screening – such as finger-printing, retina scans or facial recognition tests – would be a “disaster,” says the general manager of the Peace Bridge Authority. Read More…

U.S. travel ban may affect Niagara

No Comments

From the Niagara Falls Review:

President Donald Trump’s executive order on Friday limiting access to the United States by travellers from predominantly-Muslim countries could have a ripple effect in Niagara.

While border officials could not confirm if anyone had been denied entry at Niagara border crossings over the weekend due to the controversial travel restrictions, several posts on social media claimed a number of people living in the U.S. with Green Cards have been refused entry back home after visiting Niagara.

One message on Twitter, using the hashtag #MuslimBan, claimed two Yemen natives, who hold Green Cards, were denied entry into the U.S. at Niagara Falls on Saturday. Another tweet said a Somali doctor working in Buffalo, N.Y., on a Green Card who was in Niagara Falls for the weekend was also denied entry.

Canada border bill adopted by US Congress

No Comments

From Niagara This Week:

A bill with potentially sweeping consequences for the Canada-U.S. border has just been adopted by the American Congress, allowing new projects aimed at speeding up travel through the international boundary.

The so-called preclearance bill has now been adopted by both U.S. legislative chambers after being passed by the Senate early Saturday. It’s now expected to become law with President Barack Obama’s signature.

Officials in both countries celebrated the news. The project has involved both U.S. political parties and the Harper and Trudeau governments, yet some participants had begun worrying it might stall from inertia.

U.S. Senator Chuck Schumer To Canada – Be A Good Neighbor And Add More Border Agents – It’s a Win-Win

No Comments

From NiagaraAtLarge.com:

U.S. Senator Charles E. Schumer met with the new Canadian Consul General Phyllis Yaffe and Canadian Ambassador David McNaughton this December 1st and urged them to immediately address staffing issues that are causing long wait times at all international border crossings between Buffalo and Canada including the Peace Bridge.

Schumer said wait times this past summer got out of control because of a lack of available CBSA agents, and this lack of border agents could cause further delays during the upcoming busy holiday travel season, especially as construction begins on the Peace Bridge, reducing travel to one lane.

Niagara Falls still stunning in the dead of winter

Although this was just posted recently, it is about a visit to Niagara Falls last winter.

From MySanAntonio.com:

… the highlight of our visit to Ontario was the trip to Niagara Falls, which is about 80 miles on Queen Elizabeth Way, or 90 minutes away.

The bus ride by City Sightseeing Toronto was comfortable and filled with places to see before and after the trip to Niagara Falls with friendly tourists from several countries.

But the anticipation of seeing the 180-foot Falls was all we could think about. Even the cold — about 15-20 degrees most days during our February trip – was not on our minds. We thought we were prepared for what we’d see, knowing the Falls area gets about 56 inches of snow a year and it doesn’t melt until spring.

Everything was white. Snow and ice covered everything we saw. The walkway from the bus parking lot to the lodge near the Falls was covered in snow, but it was not slippery. It’s well-tended and appears to be frequently salted or plowed.

The roar of the Falls is loud, with a tremendous amount of water flowing from Lake Ontario onto the Niagara River, but during the winter, portions of the Falls freeze, reducing the flow.

From the Norwalk Reflector:

My wife, Jodie, and I are celebrating our 20th anniversary.

We were married Aug. 3, 1996 and honeymooned in early October of that year, taking an East Coast cruise that included stops in Rhode Island, Maine and Nova Scotia before returning to New York City.

So to celebrate our 20th, we decided to take another early October trip that would include water, beautiful scenery and the onset of fall foliage. We went to Niagara Falls.
